There are very few albums that baffle me to the point where it takes me a while to grasp the entire theme of it. This one however, left me in an odd state of discombobulation. So first, I examined the album's title. Dementiascope isn't a real word, although knowing that both "dementia" and "scope" are real words, I decided to examine the definitions of both. Dementia by defintion means "Mental deterioration of organic or functional origin", and scope by definition means "A magnifier of images of distant objects". So technically, this album magnifies the insanity in Mr. dysphor's mind. A very appropriate and enthralling album title at that.

Now, this cd is not for people who have short attention spans. This cd should be played from front to back, much like you would read a book. Only then will one be able to appreciate what dysphor has made. This album has no vocals, it's purely electronic/experimental/noise music, whatever you want to call it really. The album is full of vibrant sounds, which will take one direction, then go into completely new territory.

None of these songs would ever catch the ears of the mainstream, but dysphor isn't trying to break into the mainstream. He's trying to get the listener lost in his imagination, and he does a splendid job of it. "Incommunicado" is one of my personal favorites, in which dysphor uses a guitar. It's definitley one of the songs that's more accesible than the others. dysphor constantly changes the structure of the song, and the timing is very clever. It reminds me of Tortoise and Dredg.

"Lucidity" is another track that dysphor uses a guitar in. It's a very morbid tune. Other highlights include "Medicated Moment", "Qt Pi", and the atmospheric "Mind Tides". Overall, this is an excellent cd. It's bizarreness is what makes the cd so valuable. For fans of obscure, drifting music.
